Learning Disabilities: Program Evaluation, 1982-1983.
Balliet, Thomas A.
This progress report summarizes evaluation findings for the Janesville, Wisconsin, Learning Disabilities Program for 1982-83, which served 360 students with approximately 27 certified instructors. Past findings are listed for self-concept; teacher, parent, and administrator reactions; identification of LD students; and student achievement. Findings for the current year are in the areas of mainstreaming (e.g., approximately 15% of the LD students decreased the amount of time spent in the LD program) and achievement (e.g., a high level of reading growth has been maintained, spelling growth has increased, and math growth has declined over the past 3 years). The report concludes that student achievement data and survey responses of parents, teachers, and administrators indicate the program is a success. Changes in future evaluation strategies are noted.
